We at BSLBT are thrilled to announce that To Know Him has been nominated for two Royal Television Society (RTS) North Western awards! To Know Him’s writer, Kellie Smith, has been nominated for Best Scriptwriter, and Jemma Joyce has been nominated for Best Female Performance in a single drama or drama series. Jemma’s role in To Know Him was her first drama role for television! She told us: “Wow… I’m still in shock and am speechless right now! I have to thank Ted for believing in me and supporting me throughout the whole process. No more barriers; just more opportunities for me and others like me. Fingers crossed!” The Awards are on 10th November. We will certainly have our fingers crossed until then – our hearty congratulations go to Jemma, Kellie, and the rest of the To Know Him team.
As well as this, after his own RTS Yorkshire Award for Best Writer in July, Charlie Swinbourne has been offered a place on the BBC’s new Writers Access Group initiative! Many congratulations, too, must go to Charlie!
We’ll be keeping an eye out for further developments with great interest.
